McDonald´s workers walk
out over AC complaints

Fox News, by Luke Funk

Posted By:Drive, 7/19/2013 3:58:39 PM

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Workers at a New York City McDonald´s branch say they walked off the job on Friday because the air conditioning is broken. Workers at the Washington Heights store say they became physically sick from the heat after the air-conditioning broke down on Friday morning. The heat index hit 107 degrees at JFK Airport on Friday. It was the hottest day of a brutal heat wave that´s expected to end on Saturday. Employee Jamne Izquierdo says the conditions were "inhumane and unsafe." "We are human beings.

What did humans ever do before the invention of air conditioning?

My home didn´t have AC until I was a junior in High School!

Temperatures in the 90s with humidity levels at or above 65% easily lead to dangerously high heat index readings.

The Washington DC area has had several days of readings IN THE DANGER ZONE ~ above 124!

At some point sweating doesn´t dispose of excess body heat and if you continue you will die.

Back in the good old days people would go to the Spring House, lie in tubs of water, spray down, stay in the shade, visit caves ~ whatever they could do to cool down.

Some humans are designed to dissipate surplus heat faster than others but when it gets up there IN THE DANGER ZONE they can die too so don´t imagine your special body shape will save you.

With temps as high as they are, I´m on the employees´ side on this one. I´m surprised they even had any customers to serve anyway if the building was that hot. I would have walked right back out of an un-air conditioned restaurant.

Let´s not forget that most businesses before AC had windows that you could open during the summer. Now due to high energy bills and security, windows are sealed shut.

How many of you would be willing to spend 8 or 9 hours in a hot kitchen with no AC or working fan or open windows? Talk is cheap.

These kids probably don´t know how to take care of themselves in extreme heat. This would become a safety issue quite quickly.

I graduated high school in ´66. We had no air at school nor at home in Brooklyn. There was a heat wave that summer with temps well over 100 degrees. Roads buckled and drawbridges wouldn´t work because of expansion. Although we toughed it out, I do feel for the workers.

I´m tired of the newscasters complaining as if this never happened before.

# 6, fur darned sure the management is punishing the food!

Way back in the good old days when you left stuff out on the counter in high heat you ran a good chance of making folks sick with it! Of course they´d last long enough to go home and die of mysterious causes.

Today we know the cause. McDonald´s has it´s own lawyer dictated health standards ~ surprised they hadn´t shut down immediately. There´s stockholder equity to protect!

Heat stroke is a possibility in a building that has been designed in the last 50 years. Before then, buildings were designed with airflow through the building and included ceiling fans, attic fans, and window fans.

Yes, it could be a health issue. However, there are common sense measures employees (and management) can easily put in place. Oh, how I remember my elementary school years. Blessed Sacrament School, San Antonio, TX in the 1960´s which had horrible humidity plus high temps. I remember no fans but lots of extra water and rest breaks. I look back on it and it it taught us to "carry on " with the task at hand even when very uncomfortable. That´s not a bad lesson to learn when young...

Oh please stop it with the "we did it 50 years ago!".

50 years ago most buildings had windows that opened, fans to move air around, etc. Most modern buildings are MUCH more insulated as per mandates, most office and industrial buildings have windows that do not open. This isn´t a matter of discomfort, these people are used to working in hot kitchens. It´s a matter of health. No movement of hair and intense heat can give you heat stroke within a short time.

A few years ago, the AC in the office building where I worked stopped. We were on the 4th of 4 floors, so we were the hottest. In the morning it was uncomfortable, by noon it was starting to get hard to breathe. No air movement, and radiant heat coming in through the windows nonstop. Everyone left by 10 as it was difficult to focus on work.

I would love to put anyone of the "oh, they are just whining, WE put up with it!" types in a modern building with no air and no air movement and pump up the heat to over 100, then pump in some steam and smoke from a kitchen and see how long they last. They´d be crying after about an hour of that.

It´s a health hazard. They should have closed the restaurant until the AC was fixed.
Who wants food prepared in that heat by ticked off employees ? The better question is did they throw out the food and condiments ?

On New Year’s Eve in 2011, software developer Robin Seggelmann was in front of his computer trying to work out some kinks in the security software most of the Internet uses. That’s when he made a mistake, which led to one of the worst bugs ever in the Internet known as “Heartbleed,” a flaw in the security infrastructure (OpenSSL) for a large swath of the Web. Nowadays, it’s unusual for someone to step up and take responsibility, But Seggelmann, a German developer, did just that.

I never wanted to be a pawn in President Obama’s absurd and irresponsible attempt to mandate, regulate and complicate the American health care system. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much of a choice. I was a casualty of Mr. Obama’s Big Lie. You know the one: “If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.” By the time my plan vanished, the only individual health insurance plans available had been captured by the tentacles of Obamacare. Signing up for insurance under Obamacare was harder than making sense of Donald Trump’s hair. It took more than 20 attempts over

NEW YORK — Millions of passwords, credit card numbers and other personal information may be at risk as a result of a major breakdown in Internet security revealed earlier this week. The damage caused by the "Heartbleed" bug is currently unknown. The security hole exists on a vast number of the Internet´s Web servers and went undetected for more than two years. While it´s conceivable that the flaw was never discovered by hackers, it´s nearly impossible to tell. There isn´t much that people can do to protect themselves until the affected websites implement a fix. Here are answers to some common questions about

few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.Now, Social Security

Last week Hillary Clinton gave what appeared at first to be a rambling and unfocused answer when asked to name the proudest achievement of her four years as Secretary of State. The short version is, she doesn´t have one. But Clinton´s words make a lot more sense when seen not as a non-answer to a specific question but as an effort to lay the foundation and establish a theme for a presidential campaign. The occasion was her appearance on a panel discussion at the "Women in the World" meeting in Manhattan. It was pretty easy going; the moderator, New York

WASHINGTON — Even when Sylvia Mathews Burwell was in her early 30s, friends speculated that she might return to her native Hinton, W.Va., and run for governor someday. After all, she had been a Rhodes scholar, and her mother — who later became mayor of Hinton, population 2,600 — had driven her daughter’s interest in politics. So far that has not happened, but plenty of other things under two presidents have. On Friday, President Obama is to nominate Ms. Burwell, currently director of the White House Office of Management and Budget, to take over one of the largest and most unwieldy

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
